Now .sir1, it the head o tho .college does not believe In the inspiration of the two hooka men tionod, is it reasonable to oxpect tha the students will? Like priest like people, Is a maxim true und old, so if the blind lead the blind, the result is that both fall Into the ditch to gather. This, is tho truo state oi Christendom today, for JIB Isaiah pre- dicted, "Darkness covers the eartli and grdss darkness tho people." The ministers Jiavo rejected Cod's word and consequently do not preach the Christ and His apostles preached, and 1. make hold to say that Mr. Green is no exception to the rule A bJlef survey oE'his closing remarks will suffice to prove this when teatec by the'light of the Scriptures. I refer to the statement: "Whether more or less people go to ohurcli, it will live every minute of time that man doei for the immortal part of man needs Prom the last sentence of Mr. Green's remarks it is evident that he, with the principal of the college, does not believe in the Book of Gene- sis. Let iM-r. Green and his 'brother clergymen ponder the following quo- tation from the 1st of Timothy, chap. 6 and verse 16: "Why only ha.th im- mortality, dwelling in the light which no man cau approach unto, whom no man' hath seen> nor can see, to 'whom honor and power everlasting 1 would like iMr, Green to ox- plain if God only hath immortality, Uow-cau there be in man an immorta! part? I openly Challenge Mr. Green to produce one single text, phrase or word, from the Scriptures, which wil justify him in about the .immortal part The doctrine of the natural immortality of man Is not to be found in the word of God Pardon me, I mistake; there is one text that asserts see Genesis 3rd Chapter, 4tli verse: "And tho se-rpent said unto fclie woman, -ye shall "no surely.die." If we read the context we shall see that the serpent said thig In direct opposition to God's word Hut he >vas a liar from the beginning as1 Genesig 5th chapter 5th verse plainly shows: "And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred am3 thirty years and he died." TJiis gives the death, .blow to the prevalent -the- ory that there Is in man an Immortal part. There was nothing In the na- ture of the material out of which ho wag formed to constitute him immort- al. The Bible clearly states that he was formed out of the dust of the ground, like all other earthly crea- tures; nor 'was there anything in the peculiarity of his organization, how- ever exquisitely formed, to constitute him an. organism of perpetual motion. God breathed Into him the breath of life, as He did into the lower orders of animals, and he like them "became a 'living or animated creature. Had it not been for God's gracious plan of redemption; faintly hinted at first, hut a-fterwa-rds more fully made known, Adam ami Eve would have died at once and forever, as did Na- dab and Abihee in their disobedience. But this plan of redemption began at once to operate, so .'far ns to givo them'a'temporary respite, and the portmnty to lay, hold of the salvation provided. It did not offer them ex- emption from death, for their lives had been forfeited sfn. It did not propose to save them f-rom dying, for they had now already become mortal through sin. But ..it did propose to recover them from the power and dominion of death, and to give them a new life, a life that should be pure- ly spiritual, divine life of their ever living Lord. And this is the life that is now offered In the Gospel tp their posterity, if they will accept of it, through Christ, Having 'become mortal themselves, they become the progenitors of a mortal posterity. The stream can rise no higher than its source. This same doom of death has come upon all their descendants. We are all born to a mortal state, ir- respective of our personal character, 3ven these who have not sinned after the similitude of Adam's .transgres- sion, must die, and It is only as they ire restored to life, and made holy nnd immortal through a risen and re- surrected Christ that they can have he assurance of eternal life. This precious gift of immortality is offered .0' all mankind on condition of faith n Jesus find obedience to His require- nentsl cr as tho apostle so beautifully nuts it, "For he that aowoth to Ms lesh, shall 'of the flesh reap corrun- lon, but he that soweth to the spirit, shall of the spirit reap everlasting."

Making a Flat World Round When Columbus set out to reach India by sailing westward, lie met with opposition and ridicule. He believed the earth to be round. "Wise men held that it was that Columbus was mad and that he'd fall off somewhere if. lie departed from established beliefs. But Columbus' belief found him a continent and made him blessed of memory. The Business World is flat to some men Their profit-bearing shores of Opportunity stretch only so far as their grandfathers trod. superstition and apathy have set them confines which they may not pass. For instance, they believe the business year is a flat one not an all-year round of trade, with East joining West, with Spring merging.into rbut just two distinct seasons, with sawed-off edges gaping into space. They confine their activities to a Spring trade and to a Pall trade. To them there is no intervening continent with stores of waiting wealth. Their world is flat. They .have not explored the mid-year months of Summer trade. June, July and August are never-never land. Surely this conception of Summer as a "dull season is as fallacious as the delusion that the earth was flat. People have just as much money in the hot weather and spend quils freely as in Spriiig and Rill. Granted that they are not buying skates and snow shovels in August, yet they arebuying staple articles. Furthermore, they have an eye on luxuries and c-uuuorts tjiey an counting upon purchasing in the Fall. The modern Columbus has discovered this Summer trade this golden West lying between the continents of old beliefs. Departing from established habit, many have made their energies and ing an all-year-round proposition.

Enquiry involves no obligation on your write, if w WHY SMITH SHOULD GO TO CHURCH Editor Lethbridge Herald: question n-ihicb formed the subject an address in Wesley church here a few weebe ago has also interested me, but I have hesitated to express any views I may have on the subject, but your correspondent W. Cretin, of Diamond City, makes a few, suggestions 'with regard to. doctrines held by the various churches, and the divine authority and Inspiration ftf 'the Holy Scriptures which are able to mnlve us wise unto salvation. Hence, in tlio first place I asaume it to toe the desire of the general body of Christians to get .Mr. Smith and oth- :rs to their church'somebody; very well, r entirely agree with Mr. Green that a confession of faith on the part jf us all would do ns good, and seeing that the pastor a church in his ministry of the gospel is but a mouth- piece, of God and should express to [be best of his ability the message his congregation can ,fully endorse, with j i "thus 'saith the but, sir, is! :his always so? Alas, ahis, has not: the church of God and her leaders made a mistake just here in descend- ing from her heavenly and dignified position her Lord placed her and al- owed herself to be chased and hunted tho world, liii like a panting hart the brook, she is at a loss what do. Her best gifted pastors have Iricd but iut-ellecliml feasts fail to .jcomplish what sovereign grace and dying love have done and is doing. The fact is, man fattens himself in 'ancylng himself qualified by moral i-irtues to dictate to bolh God and EJis servants, and hence we arc found .stroking and flattering each other and dwelling sure are we in a fool's para- dise. Why, Sir, I well remember _mo time ago one of the strongest advocates of tho new theology, in island stood up to speak before a audience to expound his views. blind pastor stood up and sta-fte'd he hymn, "When I survey the Wond- and the large company itooxl and sang It over and again wI-Wi ervor, hence I suggest lovihsty is the iootrine sound 'in many of our chur- ches. Do we make the message cl-ear nd plain, or arc. engaged in a npelesR task of trylnp lo convert the vorld without making much of sin ind more of the gvaco that pardons t?
